ANCOP USA EXPLORES PARTNERSHIP WITH ANGAT BUHAY, CRS

Wednesday, November 28, 2018

ANCOP USA, Angat Buhay and Catholic Relief Services (CRS) sat down in the afternoon of November 22, 2018, to explore how the three institutions can partner in future programs for those who are in the fringes of society. This was attended by Bro. Roger and Sis Josie Santos of ANCOP-USA, Matt McGarry of CRS, and Angat Buhay Senior Adviser Rapa Lopa with Office of the Vice President Staff Sarah Aquino.

The three organizations, all formidable in their own right, are looking at possible points of collaboration in order to further their impact in terms of livelihood, health services, education, and shelter. Both Angat Buhay and the CRS cater to the needs of women entrepreneurs, farmers, displaced families due to conflict or disaster, and indigenous peoples. Angat Buhay is a flagship project of the Office of the Vice President started by VP Leni Robredo in 2016, while CRS is an International Humanitarian Organization based at Maryland, U.S.A with a humanitarian work here in the Philippines focused on an immediate response on calamity disasters. ANCOP USA, on the other hand, is well immersed in education, shelter, community development, and basic health services.

Representatives of each organization look forward to learn from the best practices of one another, introduce partners for additional resources, and complement on the strength of each other, all for the improvement of target communities and beneficiaries. (A. Alvarez)
